Holidays 2022

Help us make dreams come true! You can make this year especially meaningful for our families by becoming one of our Secret Santa’s.

Transition House’s Secret Santa Program was created to ensure that children living in our emergency shelter would not go without on Christmas morning, and no parent would suffer the guilt of not being able to provide gifts or a festive meal for their family during the holidays.


  • Children will fill out wish lists
  • You can provide a donation designated for children’s gifts
  • Transition House elves will purchase items and fulfill the wish list for each child
  • Transition House elves will wrap gifts and make sure they are delivered to each child


Thank you for your interest in becoming a Secret Santa Shopper. We rely on the generosity of friends, volunteers, and donors such as yourself to make the holidays meaningful, and each year you come through!

All wish lists have been requested thanks to your support.

If you still wish to support Transition House families as they work to secure housing through the holidays and beyond, please click here to make a donation where it is needed most.


  • Purchase a gift off a child’s wish list to contribute to their surprise on Christmas morning
  • By purchasing items on Transition House’s Amazon holiday wish list, you can have items delivered right to our door
  • Transition House elves will wrap gifts and make sure they are delivered to each child

The holidays are a time of joy for most of us…

but it can be stressful for families experiencing homelessness. With your help, Transition House can continue to provide food, safe shelter, career and life skills counseling, access to affordable housing, and many other comprehensive services during the holiday season, and into the coming year.
